Zyhame Kila Jones
Kansas City, Missouri
An artist, basketball player and car-lover
He was an artist, a basketball player, and he loved to fix cars.
On a Tuesday night, he was in Sheffield Park when a gunshot rang out. The shot was met by the city “with a quiet resignation,” The Kansas City Star’s editorial board wrote. “What would the reaction be if this had happened in Overland Park or Blue Springs or Lee’s Summit?” they asked, referring to nearby, wealthier communities.
